Strong Commitment to Community and Continued Chamber Support Catalyst for Chamber’s Recognition of Pentucket Bank March 2016 Business of the Month
Not many businesses can claim a 125 year history of meeting the needs of their community through service, customer service and financial backing.
Pentucket Bank has been leading the way in the Haverhill area for more than a century and continues to be an advocate for local business and the community, as well as a valued partner to local non-profits, giving back with generosity and fervor. For this reason, the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to present Pentucket Bank with the March 2016 Business of the Month honor. This special recognition provides an occasion to salute the positive impact that the Pentucket Bank has each year on our community, as well as our economic well-being.
Pentucket Bank is more than just a community bank, a chamber member or a tax-payer to the city – they are a community leader. “Pentucket Bank, as a business leader in our community is integral to the longevity of our success. Communities need someone with a vision who can see the potential for improvement in our city and the region, something that Pentucket Bank has displayed time and again,” said Stacey Bruzzese, CEO of Greater Haverhill Chamber. “For this reason I am proud to be presenting this honor.”
Pentucket Bank was established when they received their Mutual Charter in March, 1891 as a mutual bank which essentially means they are owned by the customers. The original bank was opened for business four hours a week at 35 Washington Street in Haverhill. Primary focus has always been on meeting the needs of the customer. Today, Pentucket Bank still does not have stockholders allowing them to provide a high level of personalized service and to provide stability and support to the communities they serve.
In an effort to recognize outstanding achievement in the Greater Haverhill community, the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce formally identifies a “Business of the Month” approximately every four weeks. This award is given to a Chamber member that is a proven leader in their business or industry and excels in the areas of community involvement, economic growth, customer service and professional relationships.
Award winners are recognized in area newspapers highlighting their distinction as Business of the Month, receive a complimentary guest ticket to the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce’s exclusive “Annual Business Awards Breakfast” and are automatically entered into the running for the Annual
Business of the Year award. That honor is announced during the annual breakfast which has been scheduled for February 3, 2017. Nominations for Business of the Month can be submitted at any time.
